Music Review - Partner

In Partner, the team of Sajid-Wajid-David Dhawan-Salaman Khan-Govinda is trying to recreate the blockbuster success of Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. With a mix of everything traditional Punjabi mast music to hip hop, reggae, r nb, Goan carnival music and the peppy Latino music this album presents the listener with some great numbers that should have a great appeal particularly for the Teenage disco maniacs.

The album opens with funky techno generated music that Sajid-Wajid blend into a bunch of different styles including Qwaali and Latin dance. Udit Narayan and Shaan do a great job in delivering Sanjay Chel’s naughty lyrics. Looking at the stills it seems like a song that would be picturized on Salman Khan and Govinda as the paint the town red with their antics. The remix with disco beats filler and DJ claps, scratch's forms affable concoction with its signature tunes and bouncy vocals is bound to be a huge hit!

The next song “Dupatta Tera Nau Rang De” makes one wonder if the team feels the word” Dupatta” may bring good luck.. Remember Lal Dupatta from Muhjse Shaadi Karogi?  But the song itself is more along the lines of Mujhse Shaadi Karogi where all others lines are kind of set back to give the big bang with the punch line – “Dupatta Tera Nau Rang De”.  Sonu Nigam and Kunal Ganjawala's vocal modulations enriched techno-gadgetry of keyboards and synthesizers makes this song a potential chart buster.

With “You’re My Love” Sajid-Wajid bring a lot of hip-hop, reggae and RNB into the track. The fun lyrics penned by David Dhawan are obviously meant for a romance that is comical in nature. The first few measures remind us of the opening of yet another chart buster “Dus Bahane”.  Shweta Pandit and Earl D’ Souza’s hip-hop rendition give it a racy appeal. "You're My Love (remix)" has animated hip-hop flow with high-voltage disco beats thumps and enthused vocals guaranteed to rock the dance floors.

The Goan Carnival and Latino styled music comes out in “Maria Maria” that reminds of the Manmohan Desai style of work.  “Soni De Nakhre” is the Punjabi track that works in a UK “bhangara” style.  Labh Januja  does a fabulous job in mixing traditional folk voice with the more modern sound that is going make the Bhangara crazy crowds quite happy.

Overall the album is a real fun one with no slow numbers. Dancers can look forward to some wonderful foot tapping numbers. Perhaps this colorful upbeat album may prove to be yet another feather in the Sajid-wajid cap.
